Where: M Nightclub, Waterfront Plaza, 500 Ala Moana Blvd.
Details: $10 cover, ages 21 and over. Guests are also invited to participate in The Manor Harlem Shakes video shoot at midnight (if you're not familiar with the latest viral video craze, click here). For more information, call (808) 529-0010 or email

Dark Night
Stop by Honolulu Museum of Art and celebrate the Elements during ARTafterDARK. The night includes an open air concert, contemporary "fire" dancers, ceramics demonstration, artist talk and a chance to win roundtrip interisland tickets from Hawaiian Airlines. The menu also beckons with offerings like a Water Snake Venom cocktail with cucumber, lychee and sake, and crab cakes with roasted red pepper remoulade and calamansi foam from The Grove.
